Childbirthing and delivery practices in the Middle East: Are husbands and other family-tied males (let's say sons, lol) generally allowed to be present when the wife is giving birth? Or is this frowned upon/taboo-ish, in a way? My character is having her baby in the household; usually these are delivered by female relatives or maybe a trained birth attendant. How weird would it be to have the father deliver the baby?
Thanks for the help!!
